Drunk ebaying last week resulted in a delivery today that included a set of old cycling shoes. The measurements the seller provided made me think they would fit my size 44 foot and I'm happy to find they do.
The part that has always confused me is how the cleat works with a pedal? Do I hook the first ridge on the pedal cage and then snug down the strap?
What about removal of the cleats? As the leather sole on these haven't cracked, would it be out of the question to have a cobbler put a rubber sole on, for both added functionality and protection? I'm thinking maybe a red Vibram gum sole like an old set of dirty bucs.
